Wine Enthusiast:

"A blend of Merlot, Cabernet and Syrah, this shows outstanding intensity and length. It has long-lasting flavors of chocolate, bright cherry, spice and leather. -M.L." (04/13)

Wine & Spirits:

"From an estate focused on Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah, this wine blends all three into a fresh and fragrant red. The color is deep with a purple core, the scent of the wine vibrant, with the crushed green peppercorn spice of Franc. It’s juicy and red fruited, the dusty cherry-skin savor of the tannins showing the maturity of the fruit without overripeness. Those tannins create a lovely texture, their gentle power built into a structure that needs several years to fully evolve." (04/13)

Wine Spectator:

"This leafy, black cherry and spice-flavored red exhibits rich, expansive fruit and a refined structure. Tightly woven, with a long aftertaste of cherry and herbs. Merlot, Cabernet, Sangiovese and Syrah. Best from 2014 through 2020. 1,100 cases imported." (10/12)

James Suckling -

"Sliced plums and peaches with hints of flowers on the nose. Full body, with well-integrated tannins and a citrus peel and fruit aftertaste. Delicious already. Focused. " (08/12)

International Wine Cellar:

"Purple ruby. Aromas of blueberry, black cherry and spicy underbrush. Sweet, layered and lush, with cassis and Oriental spice flavors lifted by zingy peppery quality. Really builds on the back end. This is a very impressive entry-level wine: splurge on a bottle for a high-end BBQ." (09/12)

Product Description:

"Brilliant ruby colour, this wine exhibits aromas of red fruits, blueberries, blackberries, spices and light, well-integrated vanilla notes. Medium-bodies, it possesses sweet, ripe tannins, and a balanced, refreshing acidity." - Importer

"Until the early 1980's, wines produced in Bolgheri were largely focused on quantity over quality. The changes that developed thereafter were largely due to the few producers recognizing the potential of a Bordeaux winemaking model which favored long ageing in small barrels. In 1983, the year when the first specifications for the protection of Bolgheri DOC wines were approved, the late Eugenio Campolmi and Cinzia Merli planted the vineyards of Le Macchiole at the foot of the Bolgheri Hills. Six years later, in 1989, the first vintage of Paleo Rosso was produced; Messorio and Scrio produced later in 1994. In 1991, Le Macchiole began working with famed oenologist Luca d'Attoma. The estate focuses on achieving the purest expression of individual varieties, crafting distinct wines of unprecedented quality. Le Macchiole joins Sassicaia, Ornellaia, and Guado al Tasso as one of the most prestigious estates in Bolgheri." - Importer
